    Houbigant used van der Hoogt's Hebrew and Greek texts, although suggesting his own personal corrections at the end of each chapter. In the facing-page Latin translation he incorporated his amendments. In 1753, Houbigant's translation was published separately in Paris as Veteris Testamenti versio nova ad Hebraicam veritatem facta.

  • Note:

    The title includes "traduits de l'anglais sur la VIIe édition" and in the Préface Houbigant mentions an edition in octavo as his source, listing its contents. The first original volume of Leslie's works comes close to Houbigant's list, but contains more of the former's compositions, arranged differently. The source referred to is not to be found.
